What’s WIPpet Wednesday?
Wednesday is for the day of the week I (and others) share a WIPpet. The word WIPpet is the joining of the word snippet with the acronym WIP, which stands for Work In Progress. Using the date to conjure up a math formula, WIPpeteers (the group of people that share WIPpets) figure out how much to share.
My WIPpet Math
The date is 3/12/2014. The page. For that we’ll start with 12. Then, we’ll borrow the 1 from 14 (the last 2 digits of the year). Let’s add those and get 13. That leaves us a 3, a 0, a 2, and a 4. Let’s add those for a 9. We’ll make them paragraphs.
What’s My WIPpet?
Same as it has been. My MG novel, GRANDMA. This week, Lizzie is giving snotty faced George a tour of what it was supposed to be like. Then, kids act like kids.
This Week’s WIPpet
I reached into my backpack and grabbed some tissues I had left in there. They were covered with the bits of things, like cookie, leaf, pencil shavings, and whatever else, gathered at the bottom of bags people used a lot.
Because, I couldn’t stand to look at him anymore, I shoved it in his face. He readily took over. I took that chance to look around once more.
I looked to the right. Just like the front door, there was a thick, even a gnat couldn’t fly between, layer of branches.
“The living room is on the other side,” I told George. And though I wanted to know just how thick the wood was, I didn’t reach out my hand and knock on it.
Before he could talk, I pointed to where he had ran. Right to the big trunk that was the base of this monstrous, ever growing tree. “That was a small walkway that went to Grandma’s studio. And right here,” I gestured opposite the front door. “These are supposed to be stairs.”
“There’s no-” George’s words stopped mid-sentence, because I covered his mouth with my hand.
I had meant to tell him, “There’s still hope.” However, I instead let out “EW!” No one likes having their mouth covered.
The creep licked the palm of my hand.
I reached over trying to rub the spit he had smeared on my hand on his shirt, but he took three quick steps away from me. And to add insult to injury, he told me, “You deserve that!”
